Ore, which contains an economical use of iron, is called an iron ore. There are many types of iron ore, magnetite Fe3O4, hematite Fe2O3 and FeCO3, etc, which are mainly used for iron making. Iron ore is an important raw material for iron and steel production enterprises. After crushing, grinding, magnetic separation, gravity concentration etc, gradually we can get iron from natural minerals iron ore. It is the mineral aggregates that contain iron or iron compounds which can be used economically.

Generally, the processing of iron ore needs several processing stages, including crushing, grinding, ore beneficiation, concentrating, drying, etc. The equipments for iron ore beneficiation is consisted of Jaw Crusher, Ball MillClassifier, Magnetic Separator, Flotation Machine, Concentrator Machine and Dryer. And Equipped with Feeder, Elevator and Conveyor, a full set of Beneficiation Production Line can be made. It has advantages such as High efficiency, Low Consumption, High Output and economical and reasonable, etc.
We can not only provide single equipment,such as jaw crusher, cone crusher, ball mill, but also can provide full production line,such as iron ore production line, ore beneficiation production line, etc.
According to different extent form, classification of iron ore have hematite, limonite, magnetite, siderite, etc. According to different iron ore types, iron ore beneficiation processes mainly refer to magnetic separation, flotation separation, gravity separation and magnetization-magnetic separation.
Magnetic separation is using magnetic field to separate materials with different magnetic intensity. Magnetic separation is the most popular method used to beneficiate black metal ore. There are two kind of magnetic separation, normal and high density. Normal magnetic separation is adopted to separate magnetite. High density magnetic separation is used to separate hematite and other ore which is weak magnetic.
Flotation process is also commonly seen in nowadays iron ore beneficiation. It has become a very important way to recover weak magnetic ore. It is also used to treat iron ore fine to reduce the content of silica and impurities.
Flotation beneficiation separates ore by different physical and chemical properties of different materials. During the process, we always use chemicals to get better beneficiation results.
Flotation beneficiation separate ore at three physical statuses gas-liquid-solid. The ore slurry enters the mixing bucket first. After the slurry is mixed thoroughly with chemicals, it is sent into the flotation machine. With water and gas fed into the flotation machine, along with the slurry, there will be bubbles generated. The bubbles take the parts which is valuable to us out of the slurry. And the rest is tailing.
The gravity separation separates ore parts with different density. Gravity separation is also one of the most popular ore beneficiation methods. It is widely used in weight metal ore beneficiation, especially weak magnetic iron ore.
Beneficiation of Iron Ore and the treatment of magnetic iron taconites, stage grinding and wet magnetic separation is standard practice. This also applies to iron ores of the non-magnetic type which after a reducing roast are amenable to magnetic separation. All such plants are large tonnage operations treating up to 50,000 tons per day and ultimately requiring grinding as fine as minus 500-mesh for liberation of the iron minerals from the siliceous gangue.
The iron ore beneficiation flowsheet presented is typical of the large tonnage magnetic taconite operations. Multi-parallel circuits are necessary, but for purposes of illustration and description a single circuit is shown and described.
Crushing is done in the conventional manner in 2 or 3 stage systems to approximately all minus inch which is considered good feed for subsequent wet rod and ball mill grinding.
Magnetic separation on average ores with 25 to 30 iron results in about 13 of the total tonnage ending up in final concentrate.
The iron concentrate as it comes off the magnetic finishers is well flocculated due to magnetic action and usually contains 50-55 solids. This is ideal dilution for conditioning ahead of flotation. For best results it is necessary to pass the pulp through a demagnetizing coil to disperse the magnetic floes and thus render the pulp more amenable to flotation.
Feed to flotation for silica removal is diluted with fresh clean water to 35 to 40 solids. Being able to effectively float the silica and iron silicates at this relatively high solid content makes flotation particularly attractive.
For this separation Sub-A Flotation Machines of the open or free-flow type for rougher flotation are particularly desirable. Intense aeration of the deflocculated and dispersed pulp is necessary for removal of the finely divided silica and iron silicates in the froth product. A 6-cell No. 24 Free-FlowFlotation Machine will effectively treat 35 to 40 LTPH of iron concentrates down to the desired limit, usually 4 to 6 SiO2. Loss of iron in the froth is low. The rough froth may be cleaned and reflotated or reground and reprocessed if necessary.
A cationic reagent is usually all that is necessary to effectively activate and float the silica from the iron. Since no prior reagents have come in contact with thethoroughly washed and relatively slime free magnetic iron concentrates, the cationic reagent is fast acting and in somecases no prior conditioning ahead of the flotation cells is necessary.
A frother such as Methyl Isobutyl Carbinol or Heptinol is usually necessary to give a good froth condition in the flotation circuit. In some cases a dispersant such as Corn Products gum sometimes causticized is also helpful in depressing the iron. Typical requirements may be as follows.
Copper processing is a complicated process that begins with mining of the ore less than 1 copper and ends with sheets of 99.99 pure copper called cathodes, which will ultimately be made into products for everyday use.The most common types of ore, copper oxide and copper sulfide, undergo two different processes, hydrometallurgy and pyrometallurgy, respectively, due to the different.

The mine tailing dam spill at BHP and Vales Samarco iron ore operations last year killed 19 people and had devastating effects on the environment.
Occurring in Minas Gerais, a south-eastern Brazilian state, the spill injured more than 50 people and contaminated the water supply of several towns.
